Gideon's Third Birthday Party

Gideon really loves trains so I decided to throw a family birthday party with the train theme. It was fun, we had picked up a big board that had wooden train tracks screwed onto it for young kids to play with trains so that was going to be Gideon's present along with some trains. Gideon helped me make and put together his train cake which I LOVED putting together, this is as creative as I get...and then I also let Gideon help me paint some boxes that he got to use as a train. It was fun and everyone was so wonderful to come and help us celebrate! I love our family on both sides!

  1. What a wonderful cake!
    I remember making my own box train when I was kid... Ahhh, good memories =)
    Looks like he really enjoyed his birthday.
    Happy Birthday Gideon!

  2. Nice cake. You and Erin should get together and make cakes. Erin's really into it too.

  3. Aww! So sweet!!! LOVE the train cake! My Munchkin loves trains too (and actually got a new Thomas engine and fold-away track yesterday for his birthday)'s funny though because Corey and I were just talking about trying to make a track for him like the one you found for Gideon. =) Sorry I haven't replied to your e-mail yet...I'm going to try to get to it ASAP. Hope you are all doing well! I love reading your blog and seeing your beautiful family!

  4. Oh, wow, I am so impressed by your awesome train cake! Good job!!! That's amazing! :-D
